HILDAY PARTY  

HILDAY PARTY
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14 2PM 7 4PM

We are so excited for the new release of the latest Hilda book in the series, HILDA AND THE HIDDEN PEOPLE by Luke Pearson coming out September 4. AND Hilda will now be a new children's TV series on Netflix this fall so we decided to show the first episode right here at the bookstore on Sunday, October 14 at 2pm and 4pm.

It's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and to be introduced to the series and to see this fun character come to life! We will be holding a raffle at the end of the second screening for all those that attended and entered that day for a Hilda doll and copy of the new book! This series is geared towards middle grades (ages 8-13).

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Introducing the novel based on the Netflix animated series, Hilda, coming to screens in fall 2018.

Meet Hilda: explorer, adventurer, avid sketchbook-keeper and friend to almost every creature in the valley! Join our beloved heroine as she encounters her very first troll, negotiates peace with some very persnickety elves, and reunites two lovelorn ancient giants. Fantastic creatures and daring adventures are all just part of another average day for Hilda, but what will she do if she is forced to move to Trolberg city, far away from her beloved valley home? Dive into the adventure with this illustrated chapter book, based on the first two episodes of the show.


 
WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME by New Hampshire author, Ty Gagne.  

ONE BOOK, ONE VALLEY
KENNETT HIGH SCHOOL
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25 AT 7PM

This is the 13th Annual One Book One Valley program and this year’s book will be WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME by New Hampshire author, Ty Gagne.
The mission of this program is to strengthen community ties and promote literacy through reading and discussing a book with a theme that resonates locally. The vision: Imagine if folks throughout Mount Washington Valley read the same book. Then talked about it. And THEN got to come together to meet the author at a special valley-wide event. One Book One Valley is successful because of you, the individual reader, and YOU, our community of readers, coming together.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
On February 15, 2015, Kate Matrosova, an avid mountaineer, set off before sunrise for a traverse of the Northern Presidential Range in New Hampshire's White Mountains. Late the following day, rescuers carried her frozen body out of the mountains amid some of the worst weather ever recorded on these deceptively rugged slopes.
At 32, she was ultra-fit and healthy and had already summited much larger mountains on several continents. Her gear included a rescue beacon and a satellite phone. Yet, despite their best efforts, forty-two expert search and rescue personnel, a New Hampshire Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter, and a Civil Air Patrol Cessna airplane could not reach her in time to save her.
What went wrong? Where You'll Find Me offers possible answers to that question, demonstrating why Matrosova's story - what we know and what we will never know - represents such an intriguing and informative case study in risk analysis and decision-making.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Ty Gagne is chief executive officer of New Hampshire Public Risk Management Exchange (Primex3), a public entity risk pool serving local governments in New Hampshire. He is a certified wilderness first responder, and serves on the Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue Team and Board of Directors. He lives in New Hampshire with his wife.

BOOK GROUPS AND EVENT:
We will be reading and discussing this book for our October Mystery Book Group and encourage anyone to join us at the bookstore on October 11 at 7pm for our discussion. Or be sure to connect with another book group in town at one of your local libraries!
Then meet us all at Kennett High School on Thursday, October 25 at 7pm to hear author Ty Gagne!

February
Lisa Gardner International Book Launch Party   Lisa Gardner International Book Launch Party
Monday, February 18, 2019 7pm
Location: TBD

Mark your calendars! It’s that time of year again, when we look forward to a new thriller by award-winning author, and Valley resident, Lisa Gardner. NEVER TELL is the new book and it comes out on Tuesday, February 19. The first place to see Lisa and get your signed copy is the night before at the White Birch Books International Book Launch Party, right here in North Conway. (Location TBD)

Lisa Gardner, a #1 New York Times bestselling thriller novelist, began her career in food service, but after catching her hair on fire numerous times, she took the hint and focused on writing instead. A self-described research junkie, she turned her interest in police procedure and criminal minds into a streak of internationally acclaimed suspense novels.

NEVER TELL
A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun.
D.D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the woman--Evie Carter--from a case many years back. Evie's father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident. But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many.
Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when she was still a victim--a hostage--and her captor knew this man. Overcome with guilt that she never tracked him down, Flora is now determined to learn the truth of Conrad's murder.
But D.D. and Flora are about to discover that in this case the truth is a devilishly elusive thing. As layer by layer they peel away the half-truths and outright lies, they wonder: How many secrets can one family have?
Lisa lives in Mt. Washington Valley where she spends her time with an assortment of canine companions. When not writing, she loves to hike, garden, snowshoe and play cribbage.
